Renault Megane 2016 GT Space Saver 

2016 RENAULT MEGANE TRIMS AND EQUIPMENT:

Unique-in-class features in the 2016 Mégane include a colour head-up display, a configurable 7-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) colour instrument display, R-LINK 2 connectivity systems via either a 7-inch landscape or 8.7-inch portrait tablet, Multi-Sense technology to personalise the driving experience and, on the GT version, 4Control four-wheel steering.

The five upholsteries, all in black, have been inspired by leather goods and stylish furnishings. Discreet topstitching on the seats and door panels further underlines the 2016 Mégane's quality, while the driver benefits from a heated seat and electrically adjustable lumbar support.

GT-Line versions feature visible exterior and interior enhancements. At the front there is a wider lower air intake with a honeycomb-pattern mesh, flanked by lateral scoops. An elliptical chrome exhaust tailpipe and a profiled diffuser hint at the car's sporty character and there are dark metal 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels and door mirror housings to match the finish on the front air scoops and rear diffuser. GT-Line badges adorn the front wings and rear.

GT-Line front seats feature additional lateral support and integrated headrests, blue topstitching and a chequered logo. The three upholstery options, in fabric or Alcantara, have blue or black stripes, and there are other hints of blue in the trim strips, all reflecting the Iron Blue body colour. The 2016 Mégane GT-Line also has a bespoke steering wheel offering a firmer grip, and model badging on the dashboard.

Higher trim levels have the R-LINK 2 multimedia control centre featuring an 8.7-inch portrait display which can be operated with pinch and zoom movements, just like a smartphone or tablet. It includes voice recognition for the navigation, telephone, apps and radio and is linked to larger loudspeakers than in the previous Mégane, better positioned at the foot of the doors. The benefit is especially noticeable with the Arkamys sound system. There is also an optional Bose system developed with Renault, featuring nine speakers and a subwoofer to deliver every nuance of the original recording.

Multi-Sense technology, which allows drivers to personalise the accelerator pedal and engine response, engine sound, steering weight and interior lighting ambience through a choice of five colours, plus – where fitted – the speed of the gear changes through the Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) gearbox and even the driver's seat massage function.
